ABSTRACT
An essay is presented which talks about Slovenian theologian and sociologist Slavoj Zizek. It highlights how the theologian relates the revolutionary philosophy of Marxism with the universal singularity of Christianity. It explores Zizek's perspective on the proliferation of Buddhism and other Eastern type of cults in the West which he perceived as a form of fetishism rather than as an evidence of capitalism.
